Mechanical clock-kit movement options
The following are the various options for Mechanical clock-kit movements to be utilized in building a clock. We offer predefined kits at Clockworks, however we can't include them all as it would be overwhelming. It may be possible to alter any aspect in the predefined clock kits that are listed. Please call to let us help with kit modifications or for general assistance.
Mechanical clock-kit movement options - Floor Clocks
Either Westminster only or triple chime. Both of these Mechanical Clock Kit options play a melody every 15 minutes and require a three weight movement. Also there is the bell strike option that will play on the top of the hour whatever hour it is, and once on the half hour.
Options are the length, the bob diameter, and if you would like a wood stick style The Pendulum or a fancy lyre style The Pendulum. The wood stick style is more antique look and the lyre is the contemporary style.
Either on the back for standard depth cases, or for the shallow depth we can do a side hammer unit.
Either a phase of the moon style, or just the hump top that says Tempus Fugit. Or we can zip off any moon The Dial or TF dial to provide a very nice square metal dial for you with no hump on the top at all. Another option is to use heavy paper stock on a thin board, use spray glue to make it stay.
Mechanical clock-kit movement options - Wall Clocks
Either Westminster only, Triple chime, Bim Bam, gong or bell. Lots of chime options there, but whatever you would like to listen to out of these we can do.
Either the wood stick style or sometimes if its short enough, we can put a brass rod pendulum in. The Mechanical Clock Kit options brass rod pendulum is different than the metal lyre pendulum as its just a brass rod going straight down with out all the decor.
Includes the back, or on the side, or even the bottom on the wall clock kits.
Square dial made of heavy paper stock that gets spray glued to a thin board, or a metal dial. In Arabic or Roman numerals. The dial on a wall clock would be mounted to the wood trim that goes around the dial, not interlocking with the movement. One style you cant get these days are the round dials that do lock into the movement, to have the appearance of the dial just floating in the air with the mounting hidden such as the Vienna regulator style.
Mechanical clock-kit movement options - Mantle or Shelf Clocks
Mechanical clock-kit movement options - Chime type
All of them really. You can have Westminster, triple chime, gong, bell, or Bim Bam strike for Mechanical clock movement kit options.
Mechanical clock-kit movement options - Pendulum
Options include metal rod to a decor for the kitchen style clocks are available, or a wood stick pendulum if the clock is tall enough. For the shorter mantle units it will be just a round bob that is usually adjustable for time keeping.
Mechanical clock-kit movement options - Dial
The hardest on the mantle units. To get a the dial with bezel with glass in convex or flat is ideal, however not always possible. If the situation calls for this type of clock dial, you may want to chase a different clock design to make, it is not often it works out well unfortunately. The shelf clocks are easier as it has a door that closes with glass in the front, rather than the round brass bezel with dial and glass all in one combination.
